Street

Ratio

The Pop gang is back in full, this time with a slightly different casting than usual, and also a retro-futuristic format of sorts, I.E.. the HD 4:3. Best of both worlds, one can say, as the cities of Hague and Rotterdam offer the perfect paving stones decor also…

Keep Calm

Small detour on the side of our official dealer of great VX parts, I namedTheories Of Atlantis. After Josh Feist’s one, today it is the part of Neil Herrick in the "Vanish" which is in the spotlight. Filmed in Pennsylvania by Zach Sayles, Neil Herrick keeps a very calm and mastered skate style on any type of spot.

For Fiddy

Bust Crew is half a clothing brand (the audiovisual offerings of which LIVE has presented to you quite a few times before), half - and foremost - a crew of friends who make skate videos - nothing that would really be anything out of the ordinary if said people didn't comprise the likes of Ty Beall, Jon Rowe, Gilbert Crockett, Pat Burke, Cory Bittle, Caleb McNeely, Daniel Ravenal and Will Rosenstock - at least for the occasion of this new edit. As its title suggests, "4FIDDY" is the group's contribution to "FIDDY", a community video initiative launched by East Coast skate magazine Skate Jawn, upon the release of its fiftieth edition. The eventual, resulting full production has similarities to TransWorld's "Cinematographer Project[(s)]", just marinated in tomato sauce and mozzarella melt, and with a dry aftertaste of thick local crust.

Daew-ON Video

"DAEWON" is a full-length documentary on the eponymous skater (with Song as his last name): a longtime fine technician with Korean origins who pretty much started writing the chapter on technical street skateboarding in the history of the activity, stringing together lines of complicated maneuvers and flip-in, flip-out prowess on anything resembling a potential obstacle - all in between two gloomy, grimy L.A. carparks or concrete schoolyards. Joe Pease directed the film, for TransWorld and Adidas. Coinciding with the recent launch of Thank You Skateboards, Daewon's board company with Torey Pudwill, the release of such a piece is a considerable push for the pair all the while succeeding at remaining an indirect one, as the narrative really focuses on Daewon's background, covering from as far as his Beryl Banks days in the era of the World Industries video "Love Child" (with Steve Rocco as a godfather), and up to his current Instagram skate king status. "Trilogy" and the tragic fate of Daewon's background track also gets brought up, as well as his symbolic, symbiotic skate tech wrestling with Rodney Mullen, or the Deca days; the DVS video, "Skate More", too, and also "Cheese And Crackers". Certain specific happenings in Daewon's career - such as the short-lived Artafact, or the occasional profusion of tanktops - were left out it seems but globally, the eventual depiction is a great representation of one of skateboarding's technical pioneers that isn't without suggesting the taste of what an episode of ON Video on him could have been. In actuality though, here's the one they did on Mullen in 2002 as a bonus.

Lisbon on fire!

Fire Island is the collective of artists from the South of Spain whose first skate video production LIVE presented to you a couple of months back, here, with all the info you might need straight from the man pulling those strings: Carlos Peraita. Now, this second clip is the result of a week-end spent in Lisbon, Portugal with Juan AmadorMarcos Castellanos and Eñaut Oyarbide, which looked like a fun one as the edit is just as packed with fun vibes and solid street skating as their first offering. All set to original music by Daniel Benegassi.

B(e)(e)r

"B(e)(e)r" is a new independent full-length video out of Montpellier, France, assembled by Bastien Regeste featuring parts for Him Self, one quite energic Théo Moga and Aymeric Sampol, an expert in secluded spots. Please just survive the introductory minute-long Ty Evans "tribute" and then you'll realize that those guys take themselves less seriously than most, all the while skating hard. Because yes, we're talking about a whole crew as guests are numerous, featuring locals Papaye, Etienne Blanc, Luka Rémy, Matéo Akermoun, Nico Mouk, Augustin Daridon, Bastien Marlin, Guillaume Carville, Clément Om, Mathis Regeste, Lionel Cabos, Adam Löfler, Tristan Chambaud, Hugo Villanova and Lou Fulford.

Enfer, oui!

Augustin Giovannoni returns with "Hell yeah" and in addition to being the title of the video, it is surely also what we all had to shout at the end of the viewing. We know the talent of the guy behind the camera, with his many videos and more recently the famous "Live Sb Report". In fact, today Augustin is the eye that immortalizes the best the Parisian skateboarding in recent years. On the menu we have the right to more or less all the Paris scene igniting the asphalt of the capital. Simple effective, hard to find a better menu.

Possibly Maybe

Although the title of the video seems to imply many a thing hypothetical, what certainly isn't is the Brazilians' proneness to shred some of the roughest, most absurd-looking street terrain known to man with tricks that realistically shouldn't even get close to happening there due to the average urethane-to-crust ratio. Well that's exactly what you get in "Possibly Maybe", featuring a chunk of the Brazilian Converse roster (including Felipe Oliviera with some of his best footage to date), interpreted through the lens and mind of Hernando "Ñaño" Ramirez. Amongst its population of over twelve million, Ñaño is São Paulo's skateboarding pimp, whose creative genius tends to mark everything he touches; take a gander at his work with Asco Skateboarding to catch a picture of his mental landscape - and then the VHS will only make even more sense.

Indigence

Costume is ran out of Manaus by local skateboarding (and video ripping) great Manitou: the ever-so-mysterious Adonis. For those who might have skated through most of their geography classes, Manaus is located in the North of Brazil; with a population of more than two million, it is the most populous city of both the Brazilian state of Amazonas and the Amazon rainforest.

Adonis has been skating since 1987, never quite stopped since and was eating VX-1000 ribbon cables for breakfast for most of that timespan (as can attest i.e.. this recent montage, or the Costume full-length), this new piece "Indigência" actually represents the first HD Costume edit. And why not? The style remains the same, and the exoticism of Manaus only pops out more. And not just to us viewers, apparently - as the video is saturated with creative spots and moves that shouldn't be so obvious.

fabio.

Not many skaters can claim to have an eponymous video part (but a part of what?). Well, as of today, Fabio Da Silva is one of those few, thanks to Quentin Sarda's initiative of a video as to honor Fabio's inclusion to the Toulouse, France-based Okla Skateshop roster.

P.E.K.I.

"Peki" is the nickname of Antonio Peković that also happens to double up as the title of the newest - and ninth! - production from the Slovenian Original Copy, a collective of artists involving Tomaž Šantlwhose works (and skating!) LIVE Skateboard Media has quite extensively featured before. Because yes, the man is as dynamic on a skateboard as he is in terms of video output; some might remember him as the titular of the last part in Nikola Racan's video, "Solsticij". Well, Antonio is quite the ripper too, whose skating is loaded with pop over some rather unexpected objects, kickflips out of backside tailslides on raw concrete in torn socks, and more cobblestones than Eastern Europe altogether could always dream to be able to keep count of. The final product is as grey as cement, sounds like rusty grinds and as to be expected from Tomzi, is put together in quite the experimental fashion - one of the genuine types, that is, and set to original music by Zlatko Djogić.

God bless Rave

As always with Rave, when you look a little at what they do, it may seem a bit weird. But in reality, so much the better not? It is this quirk that forges their identity. It is because they allow themselves to skate all spots, small, big, wood, brick, with or without utensils (more or less catholic) that ten seconds of videos are enough to know who one has to do. But special does not mean bad, the team is composed only of excellent skaters with impeccable style and determination.
